Velcro Thoughts by Adyashanti

~ Velcro Thoughts ~
When these velcro thoughts and emotions arise, the key is to face and investigate whatever belief structures underlie them. In that moment, inquiry is your spiritual practice. To avoid this practice is to avoid your own awakening. Anything you avoid in life will come back, over and over again, until you’re willing to face it – to deeply look into its true nature.
Again, the only way to know that we’ve seen into the true nature of something is that the story were telling ourselves releases. It is not only seen to be illusion; it is felt to be illusion. I often tell my students to stick with it until it falls away. The choice is between meditative inquiry and becoming a victim. That’s the choice you have – to be a victim to your own ideas and beliefs, or to feel into them until they drop away.
